Stan, the home of RuPaul in Australia, today revealed that the Queens of Australian music, sisters Kylie and Dannii Minogue, along with esteemed Kiwi director, screenwriter and actor, Taika Waititi (Jojo Rabbit, Thor: Ragnarok), will all be appearing in the Stan Original Series RuPaul’s Drag Race Down Under premiering 1 May, only on Stan.

Kylie said: “I’m SO excited to finally be a part of RuPaul’s Drag Race for the first series Down Under.  It’s such an iconic show and I can’t wait to watch the contestants perform their hearts out to win the title of Down Under’s first Drag Superstar!”

Dannii said: “I got to have a cheeky ‘Untucked’ chat with the girls on RuPaul’s Drag Race Down Under Season 1. They had come straight from the runway challenge so it was exciting and tense all at the same time, not knowing who was going to have to lip sync for their life!”

Whether the other guest stars will be judging runway looks, mentoring a maxi challenge, or dishing expert tips in the workroom, viewers will just have to wait and see.

The queens who will be racing down the runway soon are: Anita Wigl’it (Auckland, NZ), Art Simone (Geelong, VIC), Coco Jumbo (Sydney, NSW), Elektra Shock (Auckland, NZ), Etcetera Etcetera (Sydney, NSW), JoJo Zaho (Newcastle, NSW), Karen from Finance (Melbourne, VIC), Kita Mean (Auckland, NZ), Maxi Shield (Sydney, NSW) and Scarlet Adams (Perth, WA).
